Unlimited: Walk on Water Today
Sep 20, 2019 1978
Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water, and came toward Jesus (Matthew 14: 29, NIV).
Walking on water means to get on top of the things that drag you down. It means to get through the storms of life. It means to do the impossible.
Peter is the only person who has ever literally walked on water. When he saw Jesus coming to him through the darkness and the waves, he called out,
“Lord, if it’s you… tell me to come to you on the water.”
“Come,” he said (Matthew 14:28–29, NIV).
Peter knew that if the Lord called him to walk on water, that he would ultimately be safe. He knew that God’s every call is an empowerment, and his every command is a promise. Jesus did call him, and so Peter got out of the boat and walked on water (verse 29).
How many people have missed out on the most exhilarating moments of their lives because they refused to answer God’s call? But you only get to walk on water when you obey. You don’t get to experience the exhilarating joy of the Kingdom of God by staying in the boat.
Think about the challenges that you are facing. Are you trusting in the Lord to walk on water right now?
Eventually, Peter learnt to completely trust in Jesus. And so, must we. Don’t wait. Walk on water today.

Eli’s Reflection: What is one situation that you are facing right now that seems impossible? We all have them, so I’m sure you do too. The Lord Jesus is saying to you, “Come, step out of the boat and you’ll be fine.” Only you can truly know what that means in the circumstances of your life. The question is: Will you trust him?
